It is the design of the Maine State College of Agriculture and the 
Mechanic Arts to give, at a moderate cost, the advantages of a 
thorough, liberal and practical education. It seeks to do this by 
means of approved methods of instruction, and especially by making 
prominent the system of practically applying in the drawing-room, 
in the laboratory, in the shop and in the field, the lessons of the 
class-room. It thus endeavors to make its courses of high practical 

By the act of Congress granting public lands for the endowment 
and maintenance of such colleges, it is provided that the leading 
object of such an institution shall be, 4t without excluding other 
scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to 
teach such branches of learning as are related to Agriculture and 
the Mechanic Arts." 

While the courses of study fully meet this requisition, and are 
especial^ adapted to prepare the student for agricultural and 
mechanical pursuits, it is designed that they shall be also sufficiently 
comprehensive, and of such a character, as to secure the discipline 
of mind and practical experience necessary for entering upon other 
callings or professions. 


Candidates for admission to the Freshman Class must be not less 
than fifteen years of age, and must pass a satisfactory examination 
in Arithmetic, Geography, English Grammar (especial attention 
should be given to Orthography, Punctuation and Capitals), History 
of the United States, Physical Geography, Book- Keeping, Algebra 
to Logarithms and Plane Geometr}-. 

Although the knowledge of Latin is not required as a condition 
of admission, yet the study of this language is earnestly recom- 
mended to all who intend to enter this Institution. 

Candidates for advanced standing must sustain a satisfactory 
mi nation in the preparatory branches, and in all the studies pre- 
viously pursued by the class they propose to enter. 

itisfactory testimonials of good moral character and industrious 
habits will b'; rigidly exacted. They should be presented on the 
day of examination. 


The Friday following the last Wednesday of June, and the day 
of the beginning of the first terra in August, are the appointed 
times for the examination of candidates at the college. 

Arrangements have been made by which applicants accommodated 
by the plan may pass examination for admission without incurring 
the expense of coming to Orono. The gentlemen named below 
have been appointed examiners of the sections of the State in which 
they severally reside.

Examiners will indicate to parties applying, the time and special 
place of examination. Arrangements have also been made with the 
Seminary at Bucksport and with the Academy at Hampden, by 
which students from these institutions may be admitted to the 
college on certificate of qualification from the respective Principals. 

All candidates, wherever the} 7 may arrange to be examined, should 
make early application to the president of the college. Applications 
will be recorded and regarded in the order of their reception. 


Five full courses are provided, viz : A course in Agriculture, in 
Civil P^ngineering, in Mechanical Engineering, in Chemistry, and in 
Science and Literature. 

The studies of the several courses are essentially common for the 
first year, and are valuable not only in themselves, but also as 
furnishing a necessar} 7 basis for the more technical studies and the 
practical instruction of the succeeding years. 


Physical Geography, required on admission, serves as a suitable 
introduction to Geology, which is taken up in each of the 
courses. Physiology serves as an introduction to Comparative 
Anatomy, and Algebra, GeometiT and Trigonometry, taught in the 
first year, are needed preliminaries to the higher mathematics and 
the practical applications required in Surveying, Engineering proper 
and Astronomy. Botany, Chemistr} 7 and Physics are highly impor- 
tant branches, common to all the assigned courses, and hence taken 
b}' all the students who are candidates for degrees. 

Rhetoric, French and English Literature form the early part of 
the line of studies which later includes German, Logic, History of 
Civilization, United States Constitution, Political Economy, and 
Mental and Moral Science, branches, several of which relate not 
more to literar} r culture than to social and civil relations, and to the 
proper preparation for the rights and duties of citizenship. 

Composition and Declamation are regular exercises in all the 
courses throughout the four years. For the characteristic features 
of each course, reference is made to the explanatory statements 
following the several schemes of study. 


Students may be received for less time than that required for a 
full course, and they may select from the studies of any class such 
branches as they are qualified to pursue successfully. Students in 
Special Courses are not entitled to degrees, but may receive certifi- 
cates of proficiency. 

The full course in Civil Engineering entitles to the Degree of 
Bachelor of Civil Engineering; the full course in Mechanical Engi- 
i eering, to the Degree of Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering ; the 
full coarse in Agriculture, Chemistry, or Science and Literature, to 
the Degree of Bachelor of Science. 

Three years after graduation, on presentation of a satisfactory 

thesis with Hie necessary drawings, and proof of professional work 

mIv. the Bachelors of Civil Engineering may receive the Degree 

Of Civil Engineer; the Bachelors of Mechanical Engineering, the 
Degree of Mechanical Engineer; the Hachclors of Science, the 

Degree Of Master of Science.

This course is designed to fit young men to follow Agriculture as 
a profession with success, as well as to prepare them for the intelli- 
gent performance of the duties of citizenship. 

To this end, the curriculum of studies is largely scientific and 
technical, not omitting, however, those branches that have been 
referred to as pertaining to social and civil relations. 

The instruction in Agriculture is given largely by lectures, and 
embraces subjects of great practical importance to the farmer, which 
are briefly explained under the following heads : 

Agricultural Engineering. — Combined with recitations in mechan- 
ics from a text-book, lectures are given on the principles of construc- 
tion and use of farm implements, illustrated by charts to the extent 
possible, on the construction of roads, culverts and masonry, and 
on soil physics, or the relations of the soil to heat and moisture, the 
mechanical conditions of the soil best adapted to plant growth, and 
the objects to be gained by cultivation. 

Agricultural Chemistry. —Under this head are considered the 
various methods of retaining and increasing the fertility of the soil, 
the sources, composition and methods of valuation of commercial 
and farm manures, together with the principles governing their 
treatment and application, the composition of cattle foods, their 
changes and uses in the animal system, and the value and economic 
use of the various kinds of fodders. 

Landscape Gardening. — The object of this study is to furnish 
correct ideas of the manner of laying out and beautifying grounds. 
This subject is followed by lectures on Horticulture and Arboricul- 

Cultivation of Cereals. — Lectures are given upon the best methods 
of cultivating the principal farm crops. 

Dairy Farming. — This embraces the chemical and physical prop- 
- of milk, and the principles and practical operations that 
Underlie its production and manufacture into butter and cheese. 

Sheep Husbandry, — The characteristics and comparative merits of 
our different breeds of sheep are discussed, also their adaptability to 
different conditions and uses. 

Botany Following recitations and practical work in Botany, 

iven upon fungi injurious to the farmer. 
Chemistry — One term is devoted to General Chemistry, two terms 
to Agricultural Chemistry, one-half term to Organic Chemistry, and 


the afternoons of several terms are devoted to laboratory practice, 
including analysis of farm products. 

Zoology and Entomology — In Zoolog} T the larger groups of the 
animal kingdom are taken up and described in lectures which are 
illustrated by means of diagrams, models, or the objects themselves, 
and the students are required to make critical studies of typical 
animals of each group. Such laboratory practice is regarded an 
indispensable training for the more advanced study of the higher 
animals, and also forms the basis of the study of Historical Geology. 

The studies in Entomology are conducted in a similar manner. 
After a general review of the orders has been given, illustrated b}^ 
such common insects as are familiar to all, the beneficial and inju- 
rious are taken up more in detail, their round of life described, 
together with the injuries they do to the products of the farmer, the 
gardener and the fruit raiser, as well as to our forests and building 
materials, and the best known means of keeping them in check. 
For the purpose of making the instruction as practical and impres- 
sive as may be, many of the injurious insects are carried through * 
their transformations in the class-room, where each student can note 
the various changes from day to day, and learn to recognize these 
insect enemies in any stage of their existence ; and each member of 
the class is required to devote some time in field-collecting, and in 
observing the habits and work of insects in nature. 

The subject of bee-keeping is taken up quite at length ; the 
different kinds of bees in a swarm, their habits, anatomy, and the 
mode of collecting the different products are all described and illus- 
trated by means of elaborate models, while artificial swarming, the 
mode of hybridizing a swarm, and the advantages of the same, with 
the most approved methods now in use for the care and manage- 
ment of bees, are also fully described. 

Comparative Anatomy — Under comparative anatomy are taken 
up the anatomy and physiology of our domestic animals, together 
with a brief outline of our wild animals, so far as time permits. 
This is followed by instruction in stock breeding and veterinary 

Mineralogy and Geology — A preliminary course of lectures is given 
on mineralogy, followed by laboratory practice in the determination 
of minerals, and in lithology, special attention being called to gyp- 
sum, limestone, and such other minerals as are of direct importance 
to the students of agriculture. 


The instruction in Geology is by means of illustrated lectures and 
excursions, critical attention being given to the origin and formation 
of soils. 

Law — A course of lectures is given to the Senior Class on Inter- 
national and Rural Law. 

Throughout the course, the endeavor is made to inculcate estab- 
lished principles in agricultural science, and to illustrate and enforce 
them to the full extent admitted by the appliances of the laboratory 
and the farm. So far as possible, students are associated with 
whatever experimental work is carried on, that they may be better 
fitted to continue such work in after life. 

Those who complete this course receive instruction also in Mathe- 
matics, French, German, English Literature, Logic, United States 
Constitution, Political Economy, and Mental and Moral Philosophy, 
and on presenting satisfactory theses upon some agricultural topic, 
are entitled to the degree of Bachelor of Science. 

The Course in Science and Literature includes French and German, 
the general, mathematical, and most of the scientific studies of the 
agricultural course. Instead of certain branches quite purely tech- 
nical in the latter course, History, and English and American Litera- 
ture are substituted. 

In the special laws of the State passed in 1872, it is provided 
that young ladies "who possess suitable qualifications for admission 
to the several classes may be admitted as students in the college. 7 ' 

In arranging the course in Science and Literature, reference has 
been had to this enactment. From this course, however, young 
men who desire it are not excluded, as on the other hand, young 
ladies are not excluded from any of the other courses.

The object of this course is to give the student a thorough knowl- 
edge of Higher Mathematics, Mechanics, Astronomy and Drawing, 
and, at the same time, a thorough drill in the use and care of the 
ordinary engineering instruments and in the application of the mathe- 
matical principles and rules, so that the graduates can at once be 
made useful in engineering work and be fitted, after a limited 
amount of experience in the field, to fill positions of importance 
and trust. The course is also arranged so as to afford, so far as 
can be, the education required to prepare the graduate for a respon- 
sible position among men, as well as among engineers. 

In this course the work is identical with that of the other courses 
duriDg the first year. During the fall term of the Sophomore year, 
students in this course work two hours each afternoon, in the draw- 
ing room, on free-hand and mechanical drawing. In the last term 
of this year, the subject of land surveying is taken up. The first 
eight weeks are devoted to tinting, shading, etc., in water colors, 
while the remaining twelve weeks are given to practical surveying. 
Besides an hour's recitation each day, the class is engaged two 
hours, either in the field or drawing room, becoming familiar with 
the use and care of instruments, putting into practice the problems 
found in the text-book, and making actual surveys. 

In the first term of the Junior year, Henck's Field Book is used 
as a text-book, from which the student obtains methods of running 
railroad curves, putting in switches and turnouts, setting slope- 
stakes, and the calculation of earthwork. This is supplemented 
with examples worked by the student, and lectures on levelling, pre- 
liminary and final surveys, and on the resistance to trains offered by 
grades and curves, together with the theory and construction of 
country roads, streets and pavements. These methods of the text- 
book, so far as possible, are applied in the field by the execution of 
the preliminary and final surveys of a railroad from the college build- 
to some point on the Maine Central R. R., together with the 
necessary drawings, calculation of earthwork and estimate of the 
cost of bnilding and equipping the same. 

The subject of - Applied Mechanics is taken up the last term of 
this year, in which the students receive a thorough training in the 
principles underlying construction, illustrated as far as possible by 
practical exaiqplea^ in which these principles are applied. During 


this term, each student in the class works two hours each day in 
the drawing room, where isometric, cabinet and perspective projec- 
tion are taught by means of lectures and problems drawn by the 

During the first term of the Senior year an extended topographical 
survey, with the plane table and stadia measurements, is made, 
based upon a previous trigonometrical determination of the principal 
points. During this term the students are also taught the use 
of the current meter and apply their knowledge in the actual meas- 
urement of the volume of the Stillwater river. 

In the recitation room during this term the principles of the strength 
of materials are taken up, supplemented by information as to dura- 
bility, preservation and fitness for special purposes. The theories 
of ties, struts, beams, foundations, retaining walls and arches, are 
fully treated. 

Stone cutting is taken up this term, by lectures and practical 
problems, each student being required to make a complete set of 
working drawings of the most common forms of masonry arches. 

Six weeks of this term are devoted to sanitary engineering ; 
especial attention being given to ventilation, heating, purity of 
water supply and the proper drainage of houses and towns. 

The first part of the last term of this year is devoted to the theory 
of roof and bridge trusses, the principles of hydraulics as applied in 
engineering practice, lectures on the locomotive engine, while the 
greater part is given to the application ot the principles already 
learned, to the designing and calculation of various kinds of 
engineering structures, and to making out estimates and specifica- 

This, together with the preparation of a satisfactory thesis, com- 
pletes the work in the course of Civil Engineering. 


Mineralogy is taught by an introductory course of lectures, fol- 
lowed by laboratory practice in the determination of minerals and 
rocks, especial attention being given to their value for building pur- 
poses. This is immediately followed 03 T a course of lectures in 
Geology, together with excursions for the pupose of studying the 
rocks in situ, and also superficial deposits. Critical examinations 
are made in various railroad cuts of the hardness, slaty structure, 
jointed structure, etc., as bearing upon the cost of excavation. 



In the last part of the spring term, Descriptive Astronomy is 
taken by the students of the Junior Class, and Practical Astronomy 
in the first term, Senior year. 

The course in Astronomy is designed to enable students to deter- 
mine with accuracj 7 geographical positions. The principal instru- 
ments employed are chronometer, sextant, transit, and for work of 
precision, the Repsold vertical circle, an instrument made in Ham- 
burg, Germany, in 1874, for this Institution. Practical instruction 
is given in the use of these instruments, and in the most approved 
methods of reducing observations for the determination of lattitude 
and longitude. 


Students in this department secure the degree of Bachelor of 
Civil Engineering on graduating, with the full degree of Civil Engi- 
neer three years after, on presentation of a satisfactory thesis, with 
proof of professional work or study.

It is the design of this course to give such a knowledge of Math- 
ematics, Mechanics, Principles of Mechanism, Drawing and Manual 
Art as shall enable the student successfully to enter practical life as 
an engineer, with the same thorough education in subjects required 
to fit him for the general duties of life as is afforded by the other 

The first two years' work is identical with that of the students in 
Civil Engineering, except that carpentry and forge work are taken 
the second year in place of part of the drawing. In the Junior 
year, the first term is devoted to the geometry of machinery, show- 
ing the students how different motions may be obtained independ- 
ently of the power required. Special attention is here given to the 
subject of gearing, and a full set of problems worked out, illustrating 
cases commonly occurring in practice. In the second term of this 
year the subject of the geometry of machinery is continued by lectures 
on other methods of transmitting motion, as by belts, cams, couplings, 
and links. Considerable time is given to the study and designing 
of the various valve and link motions used on the steam engine. 
During the same term instruction is given in mechanics and the laws 
of the strength of materials, the student being required to design 
machine details in accordance with those laws. 

The first part of the first term, Senior year, is employed in study- 
ing the laws of the expansion of steam, and their influence upon 
the construction of steam engines and boilers, the subject being 
illustrated by experiments on the shop engine, with the aid of an 
indicator. During the remainder of the term, the students are 
engaged in designing engines and other machines, and in making 
detail drawings of the same, such as would be required to work from 
in the shop. 

During the last term, Senior year, the study of steam engineering 

ontinaed in its application to compound engines, and the subject 

of hydraulic engineering is taken up briefly, by lectures on the 

the Storage Of watei for power and the theory and construction of 

modern water wheels.

There are now three shops equipped according to the Russian 
system, and work in these is required of all students in this course. 
The first term of the Sophomore year, two hours of each day are 
devoted to work in carpentry, special attention being given to 
accuracy of workmanship. 

During the second term of the same } 7 ear, the student receives 
instruction in forge work, including the welding and tempering of 
steel. A course in vise work during the first term of the Junior 
year gives the student practice in the various methods of shaping 
and fitting metals by the use of the chisel, hack-saw and file. Dur- 
ing their second term, the Junior students in this course take turns 
in running the shop engine, and are taught the rules of safety and 
economy in this branch of Engineering. Instruction in wood-turn- 
ing is given during the last term of the Senior year. 


The work in drawing commences with a course in Free -Hand and 
Elementary Mechanical Drawing, extending through the Sophomore 

The first term of the Junior year, the student spends the time 
allotted to drawing in working out practical problems on the con- 
struction of gear teeth, cams, etc., and in elementary practice in 
line-shading and tinting. 

The second term of this year is devoted to isometric projection, 
and the making of finished drawings in ink and in water colors. In 
the first term ot the Senior year, the student prepares an original 
design of some machine, makes working drawings of its details on 
tracing cloth, and finall} T prepares copies by the blue-print process. 
The afternoon work of the spring term consists of making calcula- 


tions for designs ot engines and boilers, the construction of the 
necessary working drawings, and making thesis drawings. 

The remarks under Course in Civil Engineering, with regard to 
Astronomy, Mineralogy and Geology, apply also to this course, and 
to them reference is made. 

Theses are required of all students as a condition of graduation, 
and must be on some subject directly connected with Mechanical 

Students in this course receive the degree of Bachelor of Mechan- 
ical Engineering upon graduation, with full degree of Mechanical 
Engineer three years afterwards upon presentation of a satisfactory 
thesis and proof of professional work or study.

This course aims to supply a want felt by students who wish to 
enter certain industries in which a somewhat extensive knowledge 
of Chemistry is important. The first two years are mainly like 
those of the other courses, Qualitative Analysis being, however, 
obligatory for th^se students in the second term of the Sophomore 

During the Junior year, daity recitations are held in advanced 
Inorganic Chemistry. In the Senior year, advanced Organic Chem- 
istry is taken up. Sophomores have one exercise a week in Ele- 
mentary Chemical experiments. The afternoons are devoted to 
Quantitative Chemical Analysis by the Junior and Senior students 
of the course. The work consists of the most useful gravimetric 
and volumetric methods, beginning with the simple estimations, 
which are followed by more complex analyses of alloys, minerals, 
fertilizers, farm products, &c. A short course in the assay of gold 
and silver is also given. 

The class-room text-books used by this department are : Remsen's 
Chemistry and Naquet's Principes de Chimie. In the Laboratory 
are used : Craft's Qualitative Chemical Analysis, Fresenius' Quan- 
titative Chemical Analysis, Frankland's Agricultural Chemical An- 
alysis, Flint's Examination of Urine, Rickett's Notes on Assaying, 
Appleton's Quantitative Analysis, and Classen's Quantitative 

Valuable books of reference are found in the library. 

Students taking qualitative analysis must turnish a deposit of at 

least five dollars when they begin ; those taking quantitative analysis 

are required to deposit at least seven dollars. Students taking the 

(On rsc in Chemistry or an extended course in quantitative analysis 

expected to provide themselves with a small platinum crucible. 

Tin students, after passing all the required examinations and 
presenting satisfactory theses upon some chemical subject, graduate 
with the degree of Bachelor of Science. 

Post graduate and special students can make arrangements with 
the Professor ol Chemistry for an advanced or special course of 
laboratory irork and recitations.

It is a characteristic feature of the college, that it makes provision 
for labor, thus combining practice with theory, manual labor with 
scientific culture. 

The maximum time of required labor is three hours a day for five 
days in the week. 

The larger part of the labor is educational, and for such labor no 
compensation in money is made. Students in the lowest class per- 
form non-educational labor when required by the college and receive 
compensation, according to their industry, faithfulness and efficiency. 
The maximum price paid is ten cents an hour. In arranging for 
compensated labor, it should be understood that the college does not 
engage to furnish opportunities for such labor continuously, but 
rather as the farm and other interests require. 

The students of the three upper classes carry on their principal 
labor in the laboratory, the drawing rooms, the workshops, or in the 
field, and for such labor they receive no pecuniary consideration, 
since it is of a purely educational character. 


Thorough instruction in Military Science is given by an officer 
detailed by the Secretary of War from the active list, United States 
Army, and is continued throughout the entire course. All able- 
bodied male students receive instruction in the school of the soldier, " 
company and battalion drill. Arms and equipments are furnished by 
the United States Government. The uniform, furnished by stu- 
dents, is a dark blue blouse similar to the regulation blouse of an 
army officer, but with State of Maine buttons and gilt braid on 
cuff, and for officers, with chevrons and shoulder straps of red and 
gold ; the pants of lighter blue with gilt braid on outside seams ; 
the cap blue with gold wreath ornament. The uniform is required 
to be worn during military exercises, and it is recommended that 
it be worn at recitations and at other class and general college 


The college has a pleasant and healthful location, between the 
villages of Orono and Stillwater, about a mile from each. Stillwater 


river, a tributary of the Penobscot, flows in front of the buildings, 
forming the western boundary of the college farm, and adding much 
to the beauty of the surrounding scenery. 

The Maine Central Railroad, over which trains pass many times 
each day, has a station at the village of Orono. The college is 
within nine miles of the city of Bangor, and is consequently easily 
accessible from all parts of the State. 


The college farm contains three hundred and seventy acres of land, 
of high natural productiveness, and of great diversity of soil, and 
is therefore well adapted to the experimental purposes of the Insti- 

Wingate Hall, the building first erected, affords excellent accom- 
modations for a limited number of students. The lower rooms of 
this building are appropriated to general and class purposes. 

Oak Hall contains forty-eight rooms, and has connected with it a 
boarding-house for students. With these buildings, the Institution 
furnishes desirable accommodations for one hundred and twenty- 
five students. 

The Laboratory contains two apparatus rooms, a lecture room, a 
weighing room, a recitation room, and rooms for analytical and 
other purposes, and is in all respects admirably adapted to the 
wants of the chemical department. 

The Shop, built during the summer of 1883, is equipped for in- 
struction in three departments of mechanical work, viz : filing, forg- 
ing and working in wood. 

Coburn Hall is occupied by the departments of Natural History 
and Agriculture. In addition to the rooms needful for the two de- 
partments named, it contains a large audience-room, a commodious 
room for the College Library, and a room especially arranged for a 
Ph\ sical Laboratory. 


The College is famished with valuable apparatus for the depart- 
ment- of Agriculture, Chemistry, Physics, Civil Engineering and 
Mechanical Engineering, to which additions are made; as the ex- 
of i lie, several departments require. Models have been 


made by instructors and students and others have been purchased 
that serve for purposes of instruction. 


The library contains five thousand volumes, a large part of which 
has been obtained through the generosity of the late Ex-Governor 
Coburn. Valuable additions have also been made to it by other 
friends of the college, only a small number of the volumes having 
been purchased with money appropriated by the State. It is 
earnestly hoped that so important an auxiliar} 7 in the education of the 
student will not be disregarded by the people of the State, and that 
liberal contributions will be made to the library, not only of agricul- 
tural and scientific works, but also of those profitable to the general 

The following periodicals are supplied by the college to the library ; 
American Journal of Science and Art, Popular Science Monthly, 
National Live Stock Journal, American Agriculturist, Journal Royal 
Agricultural Society (England), Journal Franklin Institute, Ameri- 
can Engineering Magazine and Railroad Journal, Century Magazine, 
Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Monthly Magazine, North American 
Review, Education, American Machinist, Science, American Nat- 
uralist, Botanical Gazette, Mechanical Engineer, Journal of Com- 
parative Medicine and Surgery, Agricultural Science.

Echo, Bowdoin Orient, Scientific American, Scientific American 
Supplement, Eastern Argus (furnished by S. W. Gould), Lewiston 
Evening Journal, Journal of Education, Sanitary Engineer, Popular 
Science News, Washington Post, Boston Herald, Family Herald and 
Weekly Star (Montreal), Portland Express, Boston Record, Boston 
Globe (furnished by A. M. Miller) . 


The natural history collections of the college include about nine 
hundred named and mounted species of the flowering plants of 
Maine ; a collection of sections of tropical species of wood presented 
by the Department of Agriculture at Washington, and a similar 
collection of the United States species from the Census Bureau. 

The college also has a working collection of carefully selected 
forms representing the prominent groups of the animal kingdom ; 
a large and valuable collection of Maine insects, carefully mounted 
and authentically named, and a fine collection of marine animals in 
alcohol, mostly from the coast of Maine, donated to the college by 
the United States Fish Commissioner. The above collections, 
together with charts, diagrams, skeletons, models, microscopes and 
other apparatus for illustrating the studies in natural history, are on 
exhibition in Coburn Hall. 

On exhibition also are a good series of the more common minerals 
and ores supplemented by a collection presented bj^ the National 
Museum; a collection of building stones from many of the Maine 
quarries, and a collection presented by the Smithsonian Institution, 
ther with a scries of microscopical sections of building stones, 
,i by Gr. P Merrill, M. S. In the same room is exhibited a 
- of typical fossils which illustrate the various geological hori- 
zons, together with a collection Of Indian stone implements, and 
rations curiosities presented by the friends of the Institution. 

A.U students are required to attend daily prayers at the college, 
and public worship on (he Sabbath at some one of the neighboring 
rches, unless excused by ihe President. 



The students of the college maintain an active organization of the 
Young Men's Christian Association, holding meetings weekly. 

Its elevating influence in the college is clearly manifest, especially 
in the earnest and high moral and Christian life of those who consti- 
tute its membership. 


Tuition is thirty dollars a year, divided equally between the two 
terms. The cost of material and repair of tools for the course of 
instruction in the vise shop is ten dollars ; in the forge shop, nine 
dollars ; in the wood shop, four dollars. 

Laboratory expenses are at cost of glass ware broken, injury to 
apparatus, and chemicals used. A deposit of five dollars is required 
of students entering upon a term's work in Qualitative Analysis, and 
of seven dollars per term from students in Quantitative Analysis. 
Room rent is four dollars for the first term and five dollars for the 
second term of the college } T ear. 

Students residing too far from the college to live at home are 
required to room and board at the college, unless special permission 
to live elsewhere be granted by the President. Students receiving 
such permission pay room rent and fuel rent as though residing at 
the college. 

Bedding and furniture must be supplied by the students, who also 
furnish their own lights. Tables, chairs, bedsteads, sinks and husk 
mattresses can be purchased at the college at moderate rates. 

The price of board is two dollars and sixty cents per week ; wash- 
ing averages not more than sixty cents per dozen. 

The warming by steam of single rooms (each suitable for two 
occupants) has averaged for the past six 3 r ears about eleven dollars 
a room for each term. The expense of heating recitation rooms and 
rooms for general purposes has been about two dollars a term for 
each student, and the incidental expenses, including pay for the 
services of janitor, pay for bringing mail, for cleaning and renovat- 
ing rooms, for general repairs, &c, have been about three dollars 
per term for each student. 


From the items given, with an allowance of a few dollars a year 
for necessary text-books, quite an accurate estimate of needful 
expenses can be made. 

The college term bills are payable, one-half at the commence- 
ment, and the remainder at or before the close of each term. 

As security for the payment of college bills, a bond of one hun- 
dred and fift} 7 dollars with satisfactory securities is required. A 
blank form of bond will be given with the ticket of admission. 

The terms are so arranged that the long vacation occurs in the 
winter, that students may have an opportunity to teach during that 
time. The summer vacation is in the haying season, when farm 
labor is most profitable. By availing themselves of the opportu- 
nities thus afforded, together with the allowance for labor on the 
college farm, industrious and economical students can cancel the 
greater part of their college expenses. 


The trustees make provision for the establishment of free scholar- 
ships by the following action : 

Voted, That any individual or society paying to the Treasurer a sum not less than seven 
kundrecj and fifty dollars, shall be entitled to one perpetual free scholarship in the college.
